Kevin Hunter, 45, of Newark, New Jersey lost his mother, Mabel, in March, and has never reconciled himself that there was possibly more he could have done.
"I mean, one minute she was there, the next she was gone" said Kevin, his voice etched with emotion as he buries his head into his hands "I mean, I dropped her off at the bus station and told her exactly which bus to catch....and that was the last I saw of her. She has been lost ever since, no doubt crisscrossing the country on a series of greyhound buses, confused, hungry and no doubt stinking of piss."
Kevin blames himself for allowing his 98 year old Alzheimer suffering mother to embark on a road trip; solo - from New Jersey to Las Vegas, with no ID in her possession, money or any way of contacting any of her family.
"I lost her" he sobs "I lost my mom!"
